Utah’s Brian Head Resort ended up with a foot of fresh out of the latest storm and although it’s just a start, another low-hanging storm system in coming into view tonight. That system should hopefully push Utah back into winter mode by the New Year reports NOAA.

Solitude, Snowbird, and Alta all received decent accumulations out of the last round with 6-8″ accumulations (*looked like a bunch more @Snowbird — See below) while other ski areas like Beaver, Brighton, and Eagle received anywhere between 4-6″.

But the best part is what’s to come. NOAA is currently forecasting a large winter storm to cover Utah by the end of Friday, bringing with it accumulations in excess of a FOOT of new snow by Christmas Day!


“Friday night into Saturday, snow is expected across the area, with 5 to 10 inches expected across the mountains. Valleys north of I-80 can expect 1 to 4 inches of new accumulation, with little to no accumulation south of I-80.” – NWS Salt Lake City
